Summer fashion trends always revolve around bright colors and vivid prints and patterns. It brings about a cheerful and vibrant attitude that’s perfect for relaxed summer barbeques and laid back trips to the cottage. But as today’s Fashionista demonstrates, black and white minimalism adds a sophisticated cool to hot summer days.
This Fashionista avoids looking plain and ordinary by playing up textures and proportions. The Fashionista starts off with a pretty black maxi skirt, which would normally look uninteresting. But the tiny pleats give the skirt a unique textural twist. The skirt is paired with a simple white tank top. Since it’s loose, it could easily blend in with the flowy skirt, resulting in a shapeless and unflattering figure. But she gets around this obstacle by simply tucking her shirt in to create some definition. The black platform sandals are comfortable and also incredibly trendy. The oversized clutch is minimal and functional. Its size adds interest, but the black color ensures that it does not overwhelm the whole outfit. The finishing touches include slicked-back hair and the sole dash of color: a classic red lip.
To achieve this sleek black and white look for yourself, start off with a textured black skirt that is far from being boring. This can be worn with a silky white button up blouse or a white lace tank. Top it off with a white blazer and you have an outfit that works for the job and also for a girls’ night out.
For a modern and sophisticated outfit, look no further than black and white separates that are anything but basic.
